"All books have some sort of a Preface. The Old Sarge leaves it to all gentle readers to be kind. He does not pretend to be a writer; however, has set down for your enjoyment and contemplation those things that came to his mind during the days of the late unpleasantness. The pages were written in camp, on the train, on aircraft and on ship, from Helena, Montana, to Utah, California, to Miami, thence to South America, Africa, India and then back home. Thousands of miles — but the same troubles - the same pleasures and much of the same Army jargon that has been the experience of man since the first Cave Man got his First Lady by force of arms. The pages give you a span of over thirty years — since 1916 to 1949- From three times mobilized under the Federal Government to just being an Old Soldier. These pages were written from September, 1939, to September, 1949. To the many fine officers he has known and the thousands of enlisted men he has loved, a salute; to those that have had dear ones in the service he trusts that they may see with what pleasures, temptations, and horrors the God Mars sears those loved ones. We are all brothers with many hidden secrets — perhaps that is why we all do strange things when we meet another G. I."
